    I like bears a lot but I also like turtles, and I've tried to gather as many turtle coins as I could. Here's what I have so far. 1942 s fiji 6 pence.jpg 1972 seychelles 5 rupees.jpg 1974 tonga 1 senti.jpg 1976 seychelles 10 rupees.jpg 1976 tuvalu 1 dollar.jpg

    Actually no, so I appreciate the suggestion. I do have a list of coins I found in Krause or in eBay searches that I haven't been able to find yet. I'll have to add some of these to it.

    Wow, that is a sweet bale of hatchlings you have there, my coin-friend ...

    Ummm, how 'bout a 2500 year old turtle? ... can it hang-out with your kids?

    Here is a souvenir cent I found metal detecting that came from the NYC Aquarium. You can still see a trace of the word LIBERTY, IN GOD, the date and Lincolns jacket.

    Dude, you put a lot of other collectors to shame with just how serious you are with your type collecting!

    Thanks for sharing!

    I know I always come off sounding like a smart alek with my posts, but does a "turtle boat" count?

    Cool, never realized turtles were so popular in coinage. I just thought it was an ancient thing. (And a U.S. Mint thing)

    Not for my collection but I'll give you an honorable mention. I often see these when I do a search for turtle coins on eBay.
